THE GREAT AMERICAN READ is a PBS series and multi-platform digital and social media campaign designed to inspire Americans to read, vote and share their personal connections to favorite books. As part of the project, Americans are asked to choose a favorite book from a list of 100 great titles.

BAPL is partnering with PBS39, ArtsQuest, Let’s Play Books!, and the public libraries of the Lehigh Valley to bring the conversation locally. We kicked off the fun at Musikfest. Each day of the festival there were read-alouds of classic books for kids and families held at the Crayola Creativity Tent. Let’s keep the book-love going.

What is your favorite of the books below? Vote today and tell your friends to do the same by sharing this link!

Additionally, we are making a movie! Email us here if you would like to be part of our film: “The Great Lehigh Valley Read!” All you have to do is talk about a book you love. You can submit the video to us or come to a scheduled taping (dates tbd). The final project will be screened at a date to be determined, along with the big announcement of the most-loved book in the Lehigh Valley! Who will win? Let the debate begin!
